Like it or not, summertime is starting to wind down. Before too long, kiddos will be heading back to school - that means families will be loading up on school supplies. Purchasing everything a student needs for a new school year is not cheap - it's quite expensive actually. Unfortunately, many families cannot afford all of the recommended, or oftentimes required school supplies. The Studio Bee Community Youth Center in Boonville knows that all too well, and is doing something to help those families in need.

Relive 1980s Elementary School Gym Class

If you are a Generation X or Millenial like me, you likely have some strong memories of gym class. Either you loved it or hated it. I made some fun memories and built character and muscle, but I'm really glad I never have to go back and face some of these things again! And I know my teachers did their best to make gym enjoyable and teach us life skills. They succeeded - this is all in good fun. And, hopefully, future generations will get to thoroughly enjoy some of these as much as I did!
